Elaine Rainwater || Administrative Manager
A Tulsa transplant but green-chile-loving New Mexican at heart, Elaine graduated from ORU with her Bachelor of Science degree in International Community Development. In between pursuing an MBA in Leadership and tackling home renovation projects, she takes great delight in caring for her garden, cooking with friends and family, and gathering community together. Elaine forever looks forward to putting her education and experience to work in her passionate pursuit of meeting people’s practical needs in order to open the door to meeting their spiritual needs.
Sam Kyle || Program Manager
From the great city of Pittsburgh, P.A., Sam now resides in Tulsa, OK after receiving his Bachelors degree in Biblical Literature from Oral Roberts University. He enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, and being in the “great outdoors.” If you can’t find him outside, you may want to check a local coffee shop or bookstore where he’ll either be reading his next favorite book or spending quality time with his friends and family. Sam is passionate about seeing Kingdom-leaders developed to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world, and is excited to join what God is doing to raise up the next generation of leaders through ORU Missions & Outreach.
